What's Normal?


Recommended Posts

For anyone interested... I'm resurrecting What's Normal?

Had a (drunk) conversation with some friends who wanted to see it back.  Still a relative work in progress... but I've got a treasure trove of questions to add so I can keep it going.  Not sure how, or if I'll try to monetize it... we'll see.

Enjoy!

You could monetize it by giving out Normies. Small cash prizes to randomly selected participants who are most normal.  Ideally the Normies would only be 10% of the ad revenue you are bringing in through the questions/site.

The site doesn't require login, so I can't identify "who" is most normal (i can't see individual votes).  But I like where you're going with this!

curious to find out how many people (who have both feet) brake with their left foot

If my dad voted... he would be one :oldunsure:

I can...  and have when I've had poorly running vehicles, but I still voted 'no' because I'm 'normal'.

re: Monetizing... I'm thinking of tying this into a TikTok account.  I do NOT have the charisma to pull this off, but my brother-in-law does.  I figure if he posts a video about each poll... encourages people to visit the site and stitch him on TikTok, it could bring in a lot of views.  People making crazy money on there it seems.

Yup, everyone who drives manual breaks with their right(huge assumption of mine).  It would skew the results a little.

That is SO crazy.  I was thinking about this last night.  Glad to hear it's getting a second chance!

I think I can speak for all 3 stock threads here when I say we would like to buy shares in this company. We made more riskier investments than this.  Heck, we once were buying shares of a company promising invisibility.  INVISIBILITY

Is it normal that it makes me angry that so many people wipe back to front?  WTF is wrong with you guys?

Wiping back to front is dangerous.  I developed this bad habit a few years ago, maybe in an obsessive effort to cover every angle.  But anatomically, most people are built to wipe front to back.  Wiping back to front leads to infection.

some of these questions are probably regional. like folding pizza. and sandals with jeans, why is this even a question? (i live in a Los Angeles suburb and lived most of my life near a beach.)

i almost never, ever see jeans and sandals. it would be very much not normal here. not at all.

Those taint infections are killer......

Love this concept.  I've thought about it on more than one occasion when I do something I think might be weird but would like to know if its normal.

Anyway to move your Previous/Next links up higher on the page?  Would make it easier to flip through all the questions.

Yeah... for sure.  That's the problem I had with the first go-around.  I had people sign up for the site in order to vote, and gathered their particulars like geography, gender, age, etc.  Then you could compare your responses to your specific demographic.  Having people have to register proved to be a barrier to good traffic.  Good in theory, bad in practice.

Any plans for an archive section showing results from Normal polls of yore? 

 

Thanks for the revival of these. 

No... the old site is toast... including all of the results.

UX suggestion I'd try to make navigation to the next poll or polls you haven't voted in easier/more intuitive.

Thanks.  I'm a WordPress n00b, and I used a pre-defined "theme".  Still trying to navigate how I can change things, but I'm working on it!

Can you at least put new ones at the top?  Edit, nevermind they are.  I just missed some yesterday.

Flaw:  Actual normal people don't use TikTok.

They are... unless I'm missing something.

Cool. Mislead is misspelled on your site. Should be misled. Is it normal to correct other people's spelling errors?

I think it would be best (and would keep people on the site longer) if when you answered one pole the next one automatically popped up.  I thought FBG had that for the Wisdom of the Crowds feature but it does give a button to go to the next one.

That just means we get to re-answer them all again.  :excited:

You need a third option on the putting the lid down after doing business. You have flush and run (no lid ever goes down) or put it down first then flush.  What about flush and put down the lid?  I have the soft close lids so the flush handle is right next to the top of the lid and it's kind of one motion of flush and start lid closing.
